As you’ll have noticed, there’s a lot of building going on around our area as Hobsonville Point expands. Your residents’ society committee is fielding enquiries about various issues concerning our homes and our growing community.

If you’re at Come Fly With Me at Bomb Point, between 10am and 2pm this Sunday (April 8), you can take time out from kite watching to pop into the HPRS tent, chat to committee members and pick up a flyer about the next big event…

That’s our upcoming Hobsonville Point Gathering – set for Sunday, April 29, from 2 to 4pm.

Our chairperson, Errol Haarhoff, and an HLC representative will speak at the  Hobsonville Point Secondary School’s auditorium about what’s going on and you can ask questions of him and committee members.

We know many of you wished there was an opportunity for questions at the last AGM and so this is a friendly and informal forum at which you can do just that.

Tenants are welcome at the gathering too. The Point is home for both owners and tenants and it’s good if everyone feels part of our dynamic corner of Auckland’s northwest.

You’re welcome to stay on for refreshments and do some socialising. We don’t often get to meet others who aren’t close by, so here’s your chance.

If you want to come, please remember to let us know – as it’s the only guide we have for how many to cater for. To do that, just email [email protected] with the number attending.  Oh, and put GATHERING in the subject line.

We hope to see you – if not at one event then the other!

Those of you who are Facebook users are also welcome to join the Residents Society Facebook page. The page is acting as an electronic noticeboard and so is another way of keeping you up to date with what’s going on. It’s a ‘closed group’, not open to the general public. When you go in there you’ll see a question asking where you live. That’s just to ensure the page is a locals-only zone. Pop in your address and your joining request will be promptly approved. If you’re not on Facebook, don’t worry. News and topics posted there also appear on our website or in this newsletter.

Warm best wishes,

The HPRS Committee
